Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results in this administrative review, 
Commerce shall determine, and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall 
assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.\14\ If Filmag's 
weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis in the final 
results of this review, we will calculate importer- or customer-
specific ad valorem assessment rates for the merchandise based on the 
ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the 
examined sales made during the period of review to the total customs 
value of the sales used to calculate those duties in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where an importer-specific ad valorem assessment 
rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). If the respondent's weighted-average dumping 
margin is zero or de minimis in the final results of review, we will 
instruct CBP liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to duties 
in accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews, i.e., 
``{w{time} here the weighted-average margin of dumping for the exporter 
is determined to be zero or de minimis, no antidumping duties will be 
assessed.'' \15\

Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8102 (February 14,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Filmag will be 
that established in the final results of this administrative review; 
(2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies, the cash deposit 
rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the 
most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this 
review, a prior review, or in the investigation but the manufacturer 
is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most 
recent review period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) 
the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be the all-others rate of 26.59 percent, the rate 
established in the

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: March 5, 2018.
Gary Taverman,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, performing the non-exclusive functions and duties of the 
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
